Attached is a photo of V05-34-2. It is a cross of two of my Miniature seedlings. V98-4-1 (a 6W-Y) x V98-8-1 (a 1W-W). Flower diameter is 34mm. Corona length is 15mm. I realize that it measures Div. 2 but it visually appears to be a trumpet. Flower height is 90mm. Lack of symmetry, below average substance, narrower minors vs the majors and not particularly standout coloration will probably keep this one from moving on towards the Selection phase. Perhaps the strongest point in its favor is that it is VERY early.
As ratty as it may be, it Is the first Miniature trumpet of the season and it is in bloom on January 29th. The real season can’t be too far off!
